VMware Digital Workspace Newsletter - Week 24

                    Week 24 -  2022             Weekly highlight:   [Resolved] AMST-34805: Workspace ONE UEM User-Context commands remain queued for certain re-enrolled Windows Devices (88723) There are two types of MDM enrollment for Windows devices: AAD enrolled (e.g. Windows OOBE) Non-AAD enrolled (regular MDM enrollment) For AAD Enrolled devices, during device check-in, the check-in request contains an unique token for the Device Services (DS) to identify the user identity. DS will only pass user-context commands to the device if current login user matches the associated AAD user record in UEM console. For Non-AAD Enrolled devices, check-in request will not include the aforementioned token and only indicate check-in context through an additional param: maintenance mode: check-in happens when there is an active enrolled user login. machine mode:  check-in happens in the System context and the system does not have access to the user's profile. In this scenario, UEM will hold off

Week 49 - VMware Digital Workspace Update






Weekly highlight: 

 

Announcing SaaS availability of VMware Workspace ONE UEM Console 2111

  • VMware Workspace ONE UEM Console 2111 is available to Shared SaaS customers as of December 7, 2021! Rollouts to Shared SaaS environments will begin next week. 

  • What's New?

  • Stay informed with our brand new console banner notifications.
    With the new console banner notifications that appear across the top of the UEM console, you can stay updated on maintenance issues, upgrades, outages, and product announcements.

  • We've made a few enhancements to the Freestyle Orchestrator.

  • Freestyle has been promoted from technical preview to limited availability for SaaS customers. The following improvements to Freestyle Orchestrator have been made in this release.
    We have added a fast lane delivery of workflows to small device fleets. That is, workflows being deployed to <2000 devices, the devices will be notified immediately upon publishing.
    Workflows in Windows can be retrieved by devices during device check-in even when no user is logged in. This behavior requires Windows Hub 21.11.
    Workflow statuses will now be reported more frequently by devices to increase visibility to administrators, and this requires Windows Hub 21.11.
    We have made changes to the Hub catalog and assignment statuses behavior when an app is assigned both from workflows and directly.
    Additionally, admins can now add a change log to workflows and force them to execute.

  • We’ve made check-in check-out more flexible by introducing guest sessions for Launcher
    You can now designate a second Launcher profile as a Guest Session profile and enable users to skip directory authentication and quickly access installed applications.

  • Silently install your required App Store apps
    With iOS 15.1, you can set any single App Store app as a required app during enrollment. When installing the app using Workspace One UEM or Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub, the app deploys silently, even on unsupervised devices.

  • We've added support for SCEP Certificate Deployment
    From a Chrome User or Device Network (or Credentials) profile, you can now choose a SCEP certificate authority and template when adding a template-based certificate.

App Transport Security (ATS) in Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for iOS (87035)

  • Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for iOS has ATS enabled. App Transport Security (ATS) is an iOS feature that forces mobile apps to connect to back-end servers using HTTPS, instead of HTTP, to encrypt data in transit. ATS enforces a minimum security level for communications between a mobile app and web services that support its functionality. Use cases where ATS may influence the experience due to using HTTP (non HTTPS) link/URL:

    • Helpful Resources in the Support Tab

    • Embedded links/urls from the Home (Custom) Tab

    • Web Clip/SaaS Apps in Favorites/Apps/Explore Tabs

    • Link objects or Action Buttons with links in notification cards in the For You Tab

  • VMware recommendation is to leverage secure/HTTPS links/urls when configuring any of the above locations. VMware has no plans to disable ATS in the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for iOS application.

FCA-200587: Workspace ONE UEM - Strings "Console" and "Browser" Not Translated on Login History Page (86492)

  • In the Workspace ONE UEM Console under the Login History page (Accounts > Administrators > System Activity > Login History) and Login History user modal, strings "Console" and "Browser" in the Login Type and Application columns will not be translated when your admin locale is set to any language other than English. The strings "Console" and "Browser" remain in English regardless of the locale setting.

  • Valid for: Workspace ONE UEM 2111

  • Due to a change made to update the UI framework of the Login History page in Workspace ONE UEM, two strings found on the page - "Console" and "Browser" are not translated when the admin locale setting is changed from English to another language.

  • Viewing the Login History page in Workspace ONE UEM in any locale other than English will result in the strings "Console" and "Browser" to not be translated to the appropriate language.

  • Our product team has been engaged and is actively working to resolve the issue.
